Chocolate Dipped Stirring Spoons

So are you still looking for some easy and fun options for gifts or favors?  Throughout today and tomorrow I'll be sharing several ideas that are simple and quick and the great options for easy gifts or for the person that has everything.
Throughout the fall and winter people  just can't seem to get their fill of hot beverages whether it's cider, coffee or hot chocolate you'll always find hot beverages in hand.  So whether you're looking for fun gifts to give, stirring sticks to have available at your parties or favors to send home with your guests flavored stirring sticks or spoons are a perfect option.
These are a fun and easy idea that can be customized to your liking.  Simply take some plastic spoons, dip in chocolate.  From there you can leave them just like that or sprinkle with broken up candies, chocolate pieces or even marshmallows.  You could also make fun chocolate designs on them to make them festive, like chocolate snowmen or white chocolate Christmas trees.  The options are endless and your imagination is your limit.
Make a variety of these and place them in cups at your drinking station; wrap them in a cellophane bag and tie them with a cute ribbon for favors, or package them up with your favorite  drink mix and place in a cute mug for a fun and quick gift.

Chocolate Dipped Stirring Spoons

12 plastic spoons
3 Oz milk chocolate
Candy of your choice (I made hot chocolate and peppermint stirring spoons)
 -2 Tbsp peppermint pieces
 -1 1/2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
 -1/2-3/4 Tbsp mini marshmallows


Line a clean work surface with wax paper.

Chop the milk chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted.  Stir vigorously for 30 seconds.  Dip each spoon in the chocolate then place on the wax paper.

If topping with candy, sprinkle candy bits on immediately.  If decorating with a snowman or Christmas tree then allow the chocolate to dry before adding the design.

Allow the spoons to dry completely before storing or packaging.
